I know that A level and GCSE student will have grade boundaries at a midpoint in between 2019 and 2021
my Question is: What about BTEC student

Will grade boundaries be lower 2022 BTEC

Not necessarily. Grade boundaries are calculated after all exams have been marked and the Chief examiner looks at any common issues/ problem areas. It is therefore possible that they could actually be higher than last year if a high percentage of learners get a high grade.

Your th read was in the Chat section and I moved it to BTEC and other Vocational Qualification section :smile:
BTEC's are more vocational and practical qualifications have a different way of being marked/moderated to A levels and GCSE's usually. That's because they generally are structured and assessed differently to A levels and GCSE's.
No one knows yet. But BTEC's generally even before Covid had a higher percentage of candidates getting A* and A equivalent grades (DS & DS*), than A level and GCSE students did.
You'll just have to wait and see.
i wonder when will BTEC be widely accepted
